The Sabres found themselves in a two goal hole once again, and we’re unable to even the score, as they fell to the New Jersey Devils 4-1 Sunday night.

Both teams were fairly even in the first period, and the score would remain 0-0 after the first period.

The Devils would strike first, off a goal from Miles Wood. Just about six minutes later, New Jersey would double their lead when Jesper Bratt would find the back of the net on the power play.

However, late in the period, the Sabres would find some life as Zach Bogosian slid a pass across the crease to Sam Reinhart who fired home a shot past Cory Schneider. Buffalo would head into the second intermission only down a goal. 

The score would remain the same until late in the 3rd period, when Kyle Palmieri would beat Lawrence Pilut along the boards, and fire a wrister top-shelf past Carter Hutton. The Devils would add an empty net goal with just over three minutes to play to seal the victory.

Carter Hutton made 20 saves in net for the Blue and Gold. Buffalo outshot the Devils 35-24. The Sabres continue their road trip when they face Florida Tuesday night.
